    I was kinda hoping they'd talk about Guilia Tofana. She murdered at least six hundred men (who were abusive towards their wives) between 1633 to 1651 with her own poison called Aqua Tofana. (I did a 15-page report on her and other female serial killers so I wanna see more videos on her!)

    I love this series but at the same time it annoys the heck out of me as a student of history: I constantly find myself thinking "yes, but..." . (Men accusing any woman in a position of influence of magical misconduct? It's literally a witch hunt, and The Professor and co just accept it as fact.)

    I still believe the professor is a time lord but slowly thinking he's like the 13th doctors master and planning some puppet transformation plot against the planet. Learning the weak moments in history to sneak to and plant puppets to spy and overthrow the towns or countries
